She was born on April 8, 1955, in Bridgeport, CT. She was raised in Nashua, NH. Deborah came to Claremont for a visit in 1976, fell in love and made it her home for the next 42 years.
She graduated high school in 1990 and then went on to graduate from River Valley Community College with an associates degree.
While she had many professional positions during her life, the role that Deborah most cherished and wanted to be remembered for was being a mother and later a “mem”. Deb had an amazing heart and people in need were often drawn to her. She was a mother to all.
She leaves her legacy in her three children, April Woodman and her husband, Charles, January King, and Bert N. King II; her little people, Samantha Woodman, Evan Woodman, and Cody Butson; her brother, Scott Rock Sr.; good family friends Dee Wichland and Damien Bailey; as well as her Union Church extended family. Deb was important in the lives of many nieces, nephews, in laws, and wayward souls.
She was predeceased by the love of her life, Bert N. King I; her parents, Barbara (Walker) and Clarance Rock; brothers, John Gilliam, Peter Gilliam; sisters, Barbara (Gilliam) Calvin, Lisa Gilliam and son-in-law, Timothy Butson.
A service was held on Saturday at the Union Episcopal Church, 133 Old Church Road in Claremont.
In lieu of flowers contributions can be made to Stringer Funeral Home to help with funeral expenses.
